correlated response

correlated response

a change in the PHENOTYPE resulting from SELECTION for a completely different character, e.g. selection for more bristles, which in some insects can also cause sterility.

correlated response

change in an unselected character resulting from genetic selection of another character.

The consequence of having a genetic correlation between traits is a correlated response to selection.
The ratio of the indirect to direct selection response was high for TFW (105%) when the correlated response was estimated by selection for ELP.
1978) showed that the correlated response to selection was proportional to r[square root of H] Their heritability formula was developed for a single environment.
The trial, which correlated response to a Kaletra-containing regimen with baseline tests of protease-inhibitor resistance, provided valuable information about the drug in treatment-experienced patients.
Such an external cost of defense would result in a statistically significant selection line-by-damage treatment interaction as well as a correlated response of tolerance in the opposite direction of the direct response of foliar glucosinolate content.
The new trend is a correlated response - all segments down at the same time.
While selecting for udder measurements a correlated response in milk yield is expected.
The model of correlated response to selection (Falconer, 1989), wherein measurements made on the same genotypic attribute in different environments are treated as correlated traits, can be used to determine the relative merits of selecting for specific versus broad adaptation.
The correlated response of a character to a single generation of direct selection on another trait is described briefly, followed by the theoretical expectations of long-term correlated response under the infinitesimal model in an infinite population and the few locus model in a finite population.
If drift affects the correlated response criterion, it would largely be due to inbreeding depression, changes in phenotype directly related to level of inbreeding in the population.
